Both the engineer and conductor aboard the New Jersey Transit commuter train that crashed in Hoboken last month said nothing unusual occurred in the moments before the train slammed into a wall at the station at twice the speed limit, according to a preliminary report on the fatal incident that killed one person and injured more than 100 others.
With a scheduled start of 8:08 p.m. and Metro officials declining to keep trains running past midnight, Nats fans may find themselves keeping their eye on the clock as much as they are on Game 5 of the National League playoffs.
It was a tough morning for Metro commuters on five lines Wednesday. Now Red Line riders will likely face delays for the ride home. There are two issues: crews are working to replace a cracked rail outside of Grosvenor - a job that will likely extend into the evening commute.
If you're returning one of the recalled Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones - or one of the replacement models that also have proved faulty, don't just drop it in the mail. Carriers are urging people to return the phones to the closest retail store for their carrier.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
